Up next on the agenda: booking reservations.
Yelp is rolling out a new feature today for ordering food and booking reservations, Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman writes on the company's blog.
The Yelp Platform will roll out category by category. The first category is for food delivery and pickup.
Right now, anyone can order food from restaurants that work with Delivery.com and Eat24.
In the next few months, Yelp will add categories like spas, yoga studios, salons, and dentist appointments.
The Yelp Platform makes a lot of sense, given that Yelp already has a huge database of local businesses, chock-full of reviews and information about the business.
There are a handful of other delivery services out there, but Yelp seems to be aiming to stand out with its booking feature.
